Ian Peebles

I am a doctoral candidate in Penn's philosophy department, also studying social, cognitive, and affective neuroscience in Penn's Center for Neuroscience and Society.  My primary research interests are in ethics (especially bio/neuroethics) and the philosophy of race.  More specifically, I am interested in the ethics of neuroenhancements and the role of race theory in medicine and neuroscience.  I am also interested in (neo-)Aristotelian virtue ethics.

Outside of philosophy, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors (usually playing sports), dancing, watching all things comedy related, and nerding out about superhero lore.
